Aligning Global Projects with ISTE Student Standards

As I was curious as to whether I could align the Globalstorytelling Project withinternational standards, I chose the ISTE standards. I found that it did align with all 6 standards, under the following sections. (Please note that this challenge #11 of the Flat Classroom Certified Teacher Certificate).

1. Creativity and Innovation

  • Apply existing knowledge to generate new ideas, products or processes
  • Create original works as a means of personal or group expression

2. Communication and Collaboration

  • Interact, collaborate and publish with peers, experts employing a variety of digital environments and media.
  •  Communicate information and ideas effectively to multiple audiences using a variety of media and formats.
  • Develop cultural understanding and global awareness by engaging with learners of other cultures.
  • Contribute to project teams to produce original works.

3. Research and Information Fluency

  • Locate, organize, analyse, evaluate, synthesize and ethically use information from a variety of sources and media

4. Critical Thinking, Problem Solving and Decision Making

  • Plan and manage activities to develop a solution or complete a project

5. Digital Citizenship

  • exhibit a positive attitude toward using technology that supports collaboration, learning, and productivity.
  • Demonstrate personal responsibility for lifelong learning

6. Technology Operations and Concepts

  • understand and use technology systems
  • select and use applications effectively and productively
Next challenge is to align them with the Victorian Essential Learning Standards – my own state standards and the 21st Century Learning Literacies
